How Firm a Foundation


How firm a foundation, you saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he has said?
To all who to Jesus for refuge have fled!

I have found my foundation
He stands by every promise he’s made
Faithful God, never changing
I will stand on the promise of your word.

What no eye has seen, and no mind has conceived,
The promise of glory that Christ is in me.
So speak of my Saviour, my Shepherd, my Lord,
His likeness within me grows strong by his word.

I have found my foundation…

The soul that on Jesus has come to rely,
They cry out for mercy – he will not deny.
That soul, though all hell should endeavour to shake,
He’ll never, no never, no never forsake.

I have found my foundation…
